Serge Sarkisian for President

Clearly, in some parts of the world, a stint in chess politics can lend a big hand to one's bigger political ambitions - being president of a whole country. Serge Sarkisian, Armenian Chess Federation boss stayed with the Armenian team throughout the Turin Olympiad a couple of weeks ago. According to Eurasia Daily Monitor, "Some government officials and even army generals who joined in the celebrations [of Armenia's win in Turin - TCG] were quick to claim that this fact was key to the Armenian chess triumph."
